Ocean of Dots

Rarely do I paint or draw from photographs––in fact, this might be the only time I've done so.  I sold this painting to a friend recently and just a few minutes ago I stumbled across the source photo.  It was taken in California on a trip I took with my husband not long after we started dating. 

Detail:

I can't remember how long this took, but I remember how much I enjoyed painting it.  And the painting is a really nice reminder of one of my favorite vacations of all time.  I'm happy it found its way to the home of a favorite friend!
